How to diagnose repeated freezing of windows 7 (comes back alive in few seconds)
I have a borrowed HP nx9420 laptop, running Windows 7 Pro, no SP. Very regularly, maybe every minute or twice a minute, the whole machine very briefly freezes, and then resumes normal operation. The frequency of this varies, depending on what I'm doing, but is always at least once in two minutes, but never more frequent than twice in one minute. The time span the machine remains frozen is about 1 second.
How can I go about tracing what is executing or crashing regularly? I'm hoping for something easier than disabling all running apps and services one by one, like an app that will log whatever starts up frequently or something like that.
